    Any estimate on what you are willing to spend on a lift, or are those the only options you are considering?

    4-5 K on lift parts alone not including rims or tires

    i will consider anything you guys propose. I have just tried to put together a good package.

    I was also considering a full icon set up stage 4

    Don't think the resi is really needed on the coilovers unless you'll see lots of high speed stuff for extended periods of time? Also the UCAs are pretty $$. You could do the stage 2 and get the tubular UCAs or ones from TC/Camburg! Icons prob done the most R&D on getting them tuned to these trucks which is why I like them. Fox also has great stuff so I'd just look for whoever has the best deals!

    Okay I want the Icon billet UCA so thats not changing.

    As for the front i will be going Fox with a Resi

    The rear Im going a explorer leaf pack


    The last major component is Rear shock. I like the fox Resi but its only a 2.0 not a 2.5 like front.

    Any suggestions on the best rear shock out there. or one that would go well with the fox up front

    Do you mean the expedition leaf pack from AllPro? They have the rear package with shocks, springs, brake lines, flip kit and timbrens for just under 1k........those shocks also have the compression adjusters! A 2" dia rear shock is the most common and has the resi with extra fluid to keep it cool since its smaller!

    Yes sorry not explore haha. Yes. I will be rising most of the stuff from all pro.

    I just wasn't sure if a 2 in is as good as a 2.5 in the rear as the front is 2.5. Icon king and others make a 2.5 for the rear is it that much better

    I did notice icon no longer makes the 2.5 for the rear they only make the new 2.0.

    Call Downsouth Motorsports to confirm that the 2.5's are no longer available. Icon is slow with their website and have still yet to see those shocks on it.
